Happy 3rd Birthday to the Chrisamor Goodie Jar!

HIIII!!! My blog's finally 3 years old, hehe it's still my baby though :). I've only recently started posting more often (schedule in the sidebar), participating in blog hops and other communities with fellow bloggers, so in this 3rd year of blogging (especially the summer months) there's been quite a lot of growth.  Photos are from some of my favourite posts for this year, by the way.




In person, I'm not the most warm and sociable person you would meet, but get me started on a topic and I could go on for ages! Although I'm still very much an introvert (and I swear I experience the oddest things when it comes to humans), this blog has allowed me to reach further than I've even imagined myself or my thoughts going. This year, my blog reached persons in U.S.A, Russia, Germany, Canada, France and even parts of Asia! Who'd had thought, right? I keep telling myself that it can't be true, it feels so surreal. Even my blog views increased during summer, where I tried to push as much new content as possible. I was scared it was just me clicking to view my blog way too often and causing the views to go up, but turns out it wasn't just me. The hard work of going the extra mile for posts, even outside of my comfort zone and networking with other bloggers worked out.



I've noticed an increase in followers on all fronts, GFC, G+ (though I still am figuring that out still), Bloglovin', Pinterest, Facebook and Twitter. I am trying to stay on top of all of those, however I don't talk about beauty 24/7 on my social media. I have to thank you those who do follow my blog, social networks, and those who are reading this, for taking the time out of your day to actually read my blog and comment too. Oh I love comments, even if it's not a positive one! Let's be real here, we can't always agree on everything.


 I especially want to thank persons like Jen, Sarah and Angie who allow people like me to be a co-host in their amazing blog hop and for others like Melissa from TGL who also has a really good hop going every Wednesday! I've been invited to some others, but I really don't know how well I'd be able to keep up with some many blog hops, but in time I will get there. Especially if I have more time after the semester is over. ^__^ Also I want to thank the lovely girls I collaborated with over the summer, and the great people who I met around the blogging community.

Thank you to my supportive friends who silently read my blog (I see you P, hahah) and also to my babe Tyrell, who's always trying to make sure I have photos for my posts, helping me with the outfit posts and sometimes even suggesting what I write about, that's always funny. He has really good ideas though!



Look out for a giveaway coming for not only my blog's birthday but my birthday too. October is a fabulous month! Sorry September, not enough love for you haha.
